Overview

Comprehensive customization options give Zoho an edge over other CRM systems. Zoho subscribers get the freedom to set up the system the way they want. The platform also integrates with thousands of third-party apps and software. In addition to being a flexible solution, Zoho CRM is affordable and includes a free version for up to three users.
Propertybase offers a vast suite of products, from website creation to listing management to back-office automation. The price may make it out of reach for small businesses, with the basic plan starting at US$ 399/month. However, it's an end-to-end real estate solution with plenty of tools to speed your sales cycle, stay on top of listings, and market to prospects.

Ease of use

Zoho CRM's interface looks a little dated, but in terms of functionality, the system has everything you need to manage your sales, marketing, and service departments. A horizontal dashboard contains tabs for sales, leads, accounts, contacts, reports, and more. These settings can be customized to your preferences. You also have a homepage displaying open tasks, today's leads, and meetings. This can also be personalized, so the information you use most is front-and-center. And unlike many CRM systems, you don't have to worry about storage capacity. You get up to 100,000 contacts, so you can be sure every customer is served.
Propertybase offers two editions. The Propertybase GO edition is an out-of-the-box product. It's best for businesses that want easy adoption and a simple user experience. It offers a comprehensive set of CRM tools for real estate that any agency would find useful. However, it's not as customizable as other platforms, and the analytics are somewhat basic. The Propertybase Salesforce edition is a customizable platform. It requires more time to build out your personalized software solution. It's better for more complex agencies with an international presence. Both customization and training take more time compared to Propertybase GO. It's a tailor-made system that offers deep data analysis.

Support

Zoho provides standard support tools, including an online knowledge base, community forums, customer portal, and email support. Depending on your subscription package, you may receive remote assistance, live chat, and phone support five days per week. The more advanced your subscription, the faster the response time. Those customers with a yearly subscription for 25+ users may subscribe for enterprise support, which will cost 25% of the annual fee. It includes comprehensive technical assistance and a one-hour response time. You will also have early access to new features and advice on improving your Zoho experience.
A Propertybase website is included in your subscription. This will save you the cost of hosting and developing your own site. Plus, the CRM will send all web behavior directly to your customer profiles. You can see favorited properties, saved searches, page views, search criteria, plus how they navigate around your page.

Who is it for?

Zoho is a flexible CRM solution, making it a good match for businesses with a unique business model. It provides an API, allowing subscribers to integrate with virtually any third-party tool. As for the other functionality, Zoho offers every feature the average B2B, B2C, or small to medium-sized business may need. The free plan for up to three users makes it a good choice for solo entrepreneurs too.
